Throughout history many a story
Tells of cures, success and glory
Brought on those who get to hold
A lucky Angel cast pure in gold
Napoleon held close this lucky charm
To protect him in battle and keep him from harm
Victorious he was to Russia and back
As he kept it close for every attack
It was quite some time before the coin was lost
But misplaced it was at no small cost
Waterloo followed the ensuing day
Napoleon was defeated and cast away
A similar story is often told
Of a guard's favor that was luckily sold
At the cost of an Angel a man was saved
It was the coin's designer Augustine Dupres
Others will say the Angel can heal
Can protect from harm its powers are real
So take this Angel and keep it close to your heart
And great luck will follow you and never depart

Owning the famous French Angel gold coin has always been considered good luck. Legend has it that an earlier version accompanied Napoleon in his quest to conquer Europe. He carried it in the long march to Russia and back until he finally misplaced it -- the day before the Battle of Waterloo. When the coin's designer, Augustine Dupre, was sentenced to death, he held a gold Angel as he prayed for his life; it caught the eye of his guard, allowing him to 'negotiate' his escape from the guillotine.
"There are literally thousands of stories about the powers of the 'French Angel.' There are stories of people who claim their lives were saved during some tragic event to those who extol its healing powers from terminal cancer and other diseases. I have even found websites where many have told their stories. Never have I seen so much mysticism surrounding a numismatic coin. This is a coin that any collector can enjoy for its beauty, but the stories behind this coin really make it a collectors' must have piece." -- Raymond Hanisco, Coin Collecting Editor, Bella Online.
The French Angel characterizes the ideals of the French Revolution. Symbolically, the angel depicted on the obverse represents the Spirit of France and he is shown on the coin writing the French Constitution. A rooster symbolizing vigilance appears next to the angel. Behind the angel stands the fasces or bundle of rods - a symbol of power previously carried by Roman magistrates. On top of the fasces is the Cap of Liberty, which also appears on U.S. coinage with the same meaning. The slogan Liberte, Egalite, Fraternite appears on the reverse along with the date.
